Located just north of the People's Food Co-op, on the corner of 1st Avenue and 5th Street SW, the location is convenient for downtown but also has that low key neighborhood vibe that Pasquale wants to share.    In addition to seating for approximately 100 inside, there is space for another 35 guests to enjoy those Summer evenings on our sidewalk patio.

Chef Pasquale Presa is serving the food he grew up with....authentic NY style pizza along with simple, traditional Italian food.   Besides Pizza, guests can choose Pasta, Calzones, Stromboli, Panzerotti, Sandwiches, Salads, Soups and classic Antipasti plates.   It's all made with the finest Ingredients Pasquale could find.

And what would an Italian meal be without Gelato?   Pasquale's "La Dolce Vita" is our Italian Pasticerria located within the restaurant.   Serving the freshest house made Gelato and authentic Italian Pastries, it's the perfect place to cap off a meal or grab your Coffee and Cornetto on the way to work in the morning.

From Bari, Italy to New York City to Rochester; Chef Pasquale is excited to share his food and culture with you.   We look forward to seeing you!
